• Improve Performance By Balancing Workloads

    This demonstration offers an example of how to configure Integrated Load Balancer in Oracle Solaris 11 facilities to improve the business application performance. Two non-global zones apache1-zone and apache2-zone are created along with a zone (called ilb-zone), which has the Oracle Solaris facility called Integrated Load Balancer (ILB). The ILB intercepts the incoming requests from clients and allocates them to a server based upon the loading balancing rules. ILB executes optional health checks and provides the data for the load-balancing algorithms to verify if the selected server can handle the incoming request.
    In this demonstration, the incoming traffic is routed to the virtual servers (two zones) to balance the workload. In order to keep this demonstration to a reasonable length, it is assumed that Oracle database is installed on the main system. Configuration of the main workload distribution mechanism is demonstrated.
